Daily Photo Theme - #EquineTuesday

#EquineTuesday

Jaffrey, New Hampshire - Silver Ranch
This view reminded me of the 1953 SciFi classic "Invaders from Mars" a movie that terrified me.
Not the horses but the hill and fence. Funny how some things stay with you.

I'm guessing this was taken in Korea near the end of the war

I'm a big fan of minerals and crystals, but not very good at identifying them, so if see something familiar please leave a comment.

Daily Photo Theme - #ColorsOnFriday

#ColorsOnFriday

Experimenting with exposure settings
20 seconds at f/22
I was attempting to illuminate this houseplant using small pocket LEDs

Same plant, this time "painting" it with a laser
20 seconds f/22

Waving my arms wildly while listening to "Riders on the Storm"
Fun to do, this would be a great project for kids to participate in. Each child could have a different colors LED and they could "draw" their favorite shape.

20 seconds f/22

More free form trails

The longer you hold the LED in place the brighter it appears, analogous to using a brush

I'm not sure how I feel about HDR. It can be overdone but it is great way to bring out cloud details
